ABC Family, soon to be "Freeform" and home of the upcoming fantasy Television series, Shadowhunters, has finally dropped a teaser for the much anticipated show. Aaaaaand I am totally FREAKING OUT.
The fun and fabulous teaser trailer gives us a glimpse at Simon (Alberto Rosende) and Clary's (Kat McNamara) close friendship, as he appears to surprise her with something - we don't see what - on her eighteenth birthday.
Check them out being all adorable and BFFs! Clary, in typical voiceover fashion, goes on to tell us that upon her 18th birthday, she went and did a little discovering, and what did she happen to find? Only the "truth about the world". #NoBiggie
Which in true Mortal Instruments style leads us to a very glittery, ridiculously awesome introduction to the High Warlock of Brooklyn himself, Magnus Bane (Harry Shum Jr). In love with all things glitter and gold, naturally his introduction is the most fabulous and warrants drinks and celebrations, all round.
Zooming past the effervescence of Magnus, we get an overwhelmingly badass introduction to a certain tall, blonde, sarcastic Shadowhunter, by the name of Jace. Naturally, he jumps off a building, suited and booted, head to toe in leather, and of course, armed with a weapon.
You didn't think Shadowhunters were here to just stand there and look pretty did ya?
Jace, played by Vampire Academy alumni Dom Sherwood, goes from hottie to badass in 0.2, ready to kick some goddamn demon butt!
Speaking of kicking butt, can you say, Parabatai?
You read that right - next up is fellow Shadowhunter and master of Archery, Alec Lightwood.
Covered in Runes and armed with his bow and arrow, Alec takes us right into the introduction of one very sassy lady, also a Shadowhunter and sister to Alec, Isabelle Lightwood. Don't think for a second that this pretty little lady wont kick your ass, and look damn good whilst doing it.
"I also discovered that whatever your destiny is, it will find you."
A split second before the teaser ends, we get a look at Isaiah Mustafa as Luke Garroway - close personal friend to the Fray household and resident cop on the show. With the full moon appearing behind him, there's no mistaking his destiny, or Clary's. In yet another split second, we see Clary wielding a weapon, clearly a nod to her future.
In addition to this, book fans now's your chance to go CRAZY if you haven't already, because the new teaser also offers up a delicious side of Malec!
